Thanksgiving Literacy and Math Centers
This Common Core Aligned Thanksgiving Themed Center Packet has everything you need to set up Thanksgiving Themed Centers.
Thanksgiving Themed Literacy centers:
Thanksgiving Then, Both, and Now Sort and write - students will sort picture cards by the time period they belong in. For example, TV would belong to now and Pilgrims would belong to then.
Thanksgiving Themed Tiny Words Search - Students will use magnifying glasses to find tiny Thanksgiving themed words. They will record their work and then complete a writing activity.
Thanksgiving Themed Search/Read/Write the Room - Students will search for Thanksgiving themed word cards with pictures. They will then record their word next to the picture of the word on the recording sheet.
Thanksgiving Themed Build a Sentence - Students will build sentences with mixed up Thanksgiving themed cards. They will record their work.
Thanksgiving Spin a Word - Students will spin a beginning sound and an ending chunk to build real and nonsense words. The ending chunks are -ink and -ank. They will record their finds in appropriate columns. If finished early, they can illustrate their words.
Roll and Write a Thanksgiving Word - Students will roll a word and record it. They will continue to roll until one of the words has "won." They will analyze the data.
Thanksgiving Writing Center - Students will write what would make a great Thanksgiving in a mini-writing prompt book.
Thanksgiving Themed Math Centers (Each one includes Essential Questions):
Thanksgiving Number Order- Students will put numbers in order from least to greatest and then greatest to least.
Thanksgiving Friends Make Ten to Add - Students will use a double ten frame to make a ten to add. They will record their original and new problem on a recording sheet.
Thanksgiving Turkey Feather Number Bonds - Students will find the missing part of number bonds by manipulating feathers on a featherless turkey workmat. They will then complete the fact family addition and subtraction problems for the number bond.
Thanksgiving Friends Ways to Make Ten - Students will manipulate counters on a work mat to find all the ways to make ten. They will record their ten frame and addition sentence.
Thanksgiving Turkey Feathers Ways to Make Ten - Students will color turkeys' ten feathers to represent all of the ways to make ten.
